Conference Description:

Understand why social networking sites use by employees is a concern, the potential legal risks associated with use of social networking sites for recruiting process, and how your failure to handle a social networking problem can lead to other legal problems.

Why Should You Attend:

Social networking has literally exploded over the past few years. Names such as MySpace, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and many others are becoming common household names. Many companies encourage their employees to use such sites to increase the employees’ networking community. Many companies are finding, however, that employees may say too much on social networking sites – like criticizing a supervisor, engaging in on-line bullying of a co-worker, disclosing a trade secret, etc.

Can you or should you discipline? Courts and regulatory agencies are just beginning to address these important issues. The National Labour Relations Board has agreed to consider whether an employer appropriately terminated an employee for criticizing her supervisor on Facebook. On the other hand, can you use such sites for your own purposes like checking out an applicant’s profile to see if there are any discrepancies in the resume the applicant submitted to your company? Attend this webinar to understand what are the legal issues that can come up if the social networking problem is not handled properly, what the regulatory agencies are saying about it. How to write a policy addressing this problem.
